@nate , as per your post:
- "...I just received a letter that the city is installing a master meter for my park's water/sewer. They will now be billing me instead of the tenants who already have city meters in their homes and are billed accordingly by the city. Is this worth hiring a lawyer to fight it? Should I get mean or play nice?"
My Husband and I have 2 MHPs.
One MHP has city water billed directly to the Tenants.
The other MHP has city water billed directly to us.
We much prefer the city water billed directly to the Tenants.
Thus, if it was our MHP, we would fight it.
I would offer the following suggestion:
1.) Water Company - Call - Play Nice
2.) Water Company - If No Positive Response (Like Keep The Water Billed To The Tenants) - Play Mean
3.) Water Company - If No Positive Response (Like Keep The Water Billed To The Tenants) - Hire An Attorney
I would try to resolve the issue by myself first by being nice and then mean.
If all else fails, I would hire an Attorney.
We wish you the very best!
